The Other Meaning of Christmas

The Other Meaning of Christmas

I won't be greeting people with "Merry Christmas".  The story to which it refers, the nativity, consists of a prophecy, not a prediction of what might come to pass, but of the type that is pre-destined.  The woman, Mary, tells an angel that she hopes the prophecy is fulfilled.  This is interpreted by many as consent.  Unfortunately, she can't actually give consent.  The events have already been set in motion.  As told by the Bible, and as repeated by both conservative and liberal Christians, the prophecy is binding, which makes this a story of a rape.

Hi, friends!  Thank you so much for visiting my DA page.  2013 is packing its bags to go-- it's been a fantastic year. "Cavemaster" came out last year.  This year, it won the (very prestigious!!!) Three Castles Award.  That's a high honor.  Cavemaster is a tabletop roleplaying game set 10,000 years ago.  There's an optional Spirit Magic system, and the creatures are real-world "megafauna".  You'll probably recognize a lot of La Brea alumni, there.  Cavemaster is played with handfuls of pebbles instead of polyhedra dice.  The .PDF is only $11.95. http://www.rpgnow.com/product/101850/Cavemaster-RPG "Dinosaurs of the Lost Valley" is on the ra

Thanks for faving my Bear Woman pic. I'm glad that you didn't find my feminist rants to be too offensive for you to want to look at my art. :)

It was a bears & feminists kind of day. My brother's wife has started a project to sell an absinthe tea. They sell herbs through a co-op and they do the farmers' markets too.

The region from which the tea comes is very close to the paleolithic sites where cave bears decorate the walls, and there are plump "Venus" effigies.
